GREEN BERETS comes with the original MYTH II CD, so if you haven’t played it yet, and RTS is your bag. you won’t he disappointed. To the MYTH II WWII RECON grognards out there: This game is for you. With 10 well-made missions and a variety of units, the game’s depth is well worth the small price.

Green Berets isn't a bad game, but neither is it going to wear a hole in my hard drive. The gaming is tense, the firefights exciting, and the price reasonable, but poor mission design and dated camera controls sink the game into the upper echelons of mediocrity. 'Nam fans and non-production based RTS folks may get a kick out of it. Others may want to stay clear.

The rest of your arsenal is what you’d expect: grenades, high explosives, and medical kits. When compared to other Myth II mods, Green Berets stands out. When compared to other real time strategy games, however, it’s not quite as impressive. Still, online play is fabulous, and since the packaging does come with a full version of Myth II, there is a lot of fun to be had out of this box. If you don’t already own Myth II, and you enjoy good strategy games, this is an excellent choice.

Unfortunately, the camera angles harassed me to no end. Any other controls were easy to learn, and even more fun to put into practice once I got the hang of things. The graphics are good, but its obvious that a little tweaking could have been done. These are all minor quirks in a well thought out game. Its nice that you get a copy of Myth II when you purchase Green Berets. If you are a fan of Myth II , then there's no question as to if you should get this game. If you are a strategy type of fan, then Green Berets is probably right up your bowling lane. It takes a lot of patience to excel at this game, but in the end its all worth it.

Конечно, назвать Green Berets чем-то особенным и из ряда вон выходящим у меня язык не повернется. Но в тоже время я считаю, что он получился вполне играбельным, в меру азартным и в целом весьма удачным продуктом. Может, и не совсем то, что все мы от него ожидали, но все же... К тому же позволяет посмотреть на старый-добрый Миф как бы под другим углом зрения. Вертолеты и пушки - это вам не дубинки и палки-копалки, здесь соображать шустро нужно. В общем, окончательный вердикт будет таков - крепкая, добротная игра, без пафоса и претензий на оригинальность. Ветеранам все же посоветую взять и посмотреть на то, во что превратили их любимую игру, да и потом до выхода третьего "Мифа" все равно еще времени навалом, новобранцам же рекомендую равняться на старших по званию. Классику все-таки надо знать, потому что все новое, как регулярно показывает нам жизнь... это хорошо (или не совсем) забытое старое.

In conclusion, if you are relatively new to Myth II plug-ins or just fascinated by our countries involvement in Vietnam, I would recommend this game (although I wouldn’t look to close for historical accuracy). However, if you are a seasoned veteran of the plug-in scene then I wouldn’t go out of my way to get it. I would also like to say that if you already don’t own a copy of Myth II and are looking to purchase one, this is a good way of doing so.

Myth fans may enjoy the novelty of new solo missions and multiplayer maps that add a good number of new units, but veterans in the community could likely name a number of free mods that match the quality of Green Berets on a smaller scale.
WindowsGameStar (Germany) (Sep, 2001)
Eigentlich eine gute Idee: Per Addon spendiert Take 2 dem beiliegenden Myth 2 ein frisches Szenario. Warum musste aber als Grundgerüst unbedingt so ein altes Spiel herhalten, das noch dazu nur ein lascher Aufguss eines – zugegeben gelungenen – Vorgängers war? Zu oft katapultieren mich veraltete Grafik und umständliche Steuerung aus dem Dschungelkrieg zurück in die raue Wirklichkeit. Ein Bravo für die Idee, aber von der Ausführung hätte ich mehr erwartet.

When the battle is over, Green Berets comes away a bit of a wounded warrior. Despite some exciting battle sequences, solid replay value and the inclusion of Myth II, Green Berets suffers from poor mission design, a bland presentation and vexing camera control. With numerous community mods available for free, I can really only recommend Green Berets to diehard Myth fans. As for the rest of you soldiers, there are bigger battles to fight.

Bungie's Myth games brought an intriguing premise of small-scale tactical battles to the real-time-strategy genre, but the format never caught on, and sold poorly, despite improvements in the sequel.
